Mauricio Romo is an Associate Professor at the Shanghai Institute for Mathematics and Interdisciplinary Sciences (SIMIS) . He obtained his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics at University of California, Santa Barbara in 2012, after which he was a post-doc at Kavli IPMU and IAS.

Professor Romo works on the interface of physics and mathematics. His research have been focused on the relation between 2-dimensional quantum field theories and categorical and geometric aspects of Calabi-Yau manifolds. These includes, but is not limited to, mirror symmetry, quantum geometry and BPS states.
